Toronto, ON. - The Comets are leaving Toronto this weekend 1-1 after a big third period comeback by the Marlies.

The Marlies struck first early in the first period with a power play goal by Adam Brooks. His first of three of the night.

The Comets would score 3 unanswered goals through the end of the second period. Justin Bailey and Lukas Jasek added one each in the first and on a power play Reid Boucher with a shot in the second which was deflected off of Bailey to the back of the net so Bailey tallies two goals for this game.

The Marlies caught fire in the third period, scoring two goals back to back in the middle of the period to tie things up 3-all and with five minutes to go, Jesper Lindgren sent a shot in that was deflected passed Michael DiPietro to take the lead 4-3.

To seal the win, Adam Brooks scored in a two-on-one push that gave him a hat trick for this game and put the Marlie in front 5-3.

The Comets could not answer the timely surge of the Marlies and are going home with a weekend split.

Following the conclusion of the game the Canucks recalled forward Antoine Roussel and defenseman Jalen Chatfield.
